You've been singing songs for all the wrong reasons.
For reasons you're not at liberty to say.
It wasn't to get rich or famous or get laid.
Mainly you wrote those fucking songs to drive me away.

And when you go to bed at night you're a skeleton.
With visions in your head too big to see.
And the insides of your mouth inflate and try to suffocate you.
Its hard, its hard, its hard to fall asleep.

And you've been looking for an honest way out for too long, because suicide is not the key.
And you hate the taste of alcohol and medicine.
Well the answer, the answer, the answer is plain to see.

So come along, lets get murdered!
Lets go to sleep and never wake up!
Lets find a loop-hole out of this!

    General CommentThis is my all-time favorite AJJ song. It's witty and original, yet stems from an idea that I think almost everyone has toyed with at some point -- a way to get out of life, guilt free. The obvious solution? Don't commit suicide, get murdered.

    I often try to write my own crappy songs and so the first verse obviously speaks to me. I write about what I know and that often involves the people around me. People get very anxious and suspicious when they know songs refer to them. I have driven away many through the truths that come out as a result.

    The second verse reminds me of those thoughts that creep in late at night, but seem silly and trivial in the morning. "It's hard to fall asleep"

    The third verse is the clincher and transitions into the catchy solution/chorus. "You hate the taste of alcohol and medicine. Well, the answer is plain to see."

    General CommentWill always remind me of 'A Matter of Death and Life' by Andrey Kurkov.
    'And when you go to bed at night you're a skeleton.
    With visions in your head too big to see.'
    This. I really like this part, even though I kind-of/don't-completely understand it.
    And I love how the last two lines are sung.

    General CommentI think this song is from the perspective of that nagging voice in the back of your head telling you to kill yourself
